TRUMBULL \u2014 Nicole DaSilva remembers her grandfather Gino Magliocco as a man who was \u201calways on the move.\u201d He was either fixing cars, or working in his garden, or making homemade wine and sausage, or engaged in another project. But, said DaSilva, Magliocco always had time for his family. \u201cHe basically loved to be with his family if he wasn\u2019t working on cars,\u201d said DaSilva, who lives in Shelton. \u201cWhen he would walk through the door at the end of the day, it didn\u2019t matter how tired he was. He would sit at the head of the table and tell all these stories.\u201d Magliocco, 84, of Monroe, died April 21 after a one-motor vehicle crash on Stonehouse Road in Trumbull. The Trumbull Police Department traffic division is still investigating the incident, but there is no new information at this time said Trumbull police spokesman Lt. Brian Weir. He said it \u201cmay take several weeks or even months before any significant information is learned.\u201d Despite his age, DaSilva said her grandfather was energetic and engaged right up to the end of his life. She recalled him telling her grandmother a week or two ago that he was thinking of getting a job. \u201cHe always had energy, every single time my mom would speak to him,\u201d DaSilva said. She recalled her grandfather as a boisterous, fun-loving man who would do anything for his grandchildren. But she said he had worked hard for everything he had. Born in Torrice, Frosinone, Italy, Magliocco moved to Caracas, Venezula at age 18 with his brother. According to Magliocco\u2019s obituary, that\u2019s where the brothers learned the auto body repair trade before coming to the United States in 1971. Eventually, in 1978, they started their own shop, R & G Auto Body in Bridgeport. DaSilva said her grandfather had the business until his retirement in 2001. She said his bravery and perseverance have been an inspiration for her. \u201cHe came over from Italy, didn\u2019t speak the language, (didn\u2019t know anyone) and still had the courage to start a business,\u201d DaSilva said, adding that, it\u2019s partly because of Magliocco that she started her own eyelash and makeup business. \u201cI knew that I could do it if he could,\u201d she said. Despite his strength and work ethic, her grandfather was also a lot of fun, DaSilva said. \u201cMe and my sister \u2014 he would let us do whatever we wanted to him,\u201d she said. \u201cWe could put makeup on him or put braids in his hair.\u201d Her grandfather had thick beautiful hair, she said, and, as a kid, she and her sister once put flower clips in it for fun. Her grandfather fell asleep with the clips in his hair, DaSilva said, and, when he woke up, he had forgotten they were there and went to the local Italian club still wearing them. \u201cBecause (his hair) was so thick, it was kind of hidden to him,\u201d DaSilva said. \u201cBut anyone who stood behind him could see he had clips in his hair.\u201d But her grandfather wasn\u2019t upset when figured out what had happened, she said. \u201cHe wasn\u2019t even angry,\u201d DaSilva said. \u201cHe was laughing.\u201d A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at noon Wednesday at St. Theresa Church, 5301 Main St., Trumbull. Entombment will follow in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport. Relatives and friends may greet the family at a walk-through visitation on Wednesday morning from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the Abriola Parkview Funeral Home, 419 White Plains Rd., Trumbull. At the family\u2019s request, masks are required and those attending are asked to adhere to social distance.
